i've been considering a brooks b17 for a while now on my road bike... but was hesitant to pay that much for a saddle I hadn't at least test sat on... I finally got to test sit on a brooks b17 and it felt like it was a saddle i could def grow into... I can see how people could grow to love them.
that being said i've read of a few big guys killing them quickly... i'm 300# and am worried of it failing quickly... my wallet can't justify the cost if that happens just shortly after I manage to get it broken in.
am I worried about nothing?
